How do you think this affects how the Steelers go about the draft?

They have to look into a speed guy at the tailback position for sure now. Any ideas?

Andre Ellington would be a good pick in the 3rd round.

Knile Davis would be nice but never seems to be healthy.

Davis has been timed in the low 4.3's for 40 speed. That and he carries a 226lb frame, and is 6ft tall. If he can stay healthy he would be a great pickup. Ellington and Jawan Jamison are both smaller speed backs but are not as scrawny looking as Rainey was
